Welcome to the Heps, "Live Fast"

How do the Brown Women get motivated before a conference championships? By rocking out to M.I.A. Thanks to Victoria O’Neil in sharing the video with us and now, HepsNation. How do YOU get motivated before Heps?


Making It To Next Level

Making It To Next Level

Two Ivy alumni reached new athletic levels this past weekend – one on a track, and one on an obstacle course. Dan Lowry (Brown) and Liam Boylan-Pett (Columbia) took part in a state-record-breaking attempt in Saline, Mich., where the objective was to break the state record in the mile, 3:55.87.  The event was organized by […]


Tri-Meets, Upstate Battles, and Angry Birds

Tri-Meets, Upstate Battles, and Angry Birds

This weekend has some fun meets lined up. The headliner this weekend is the annual Yale-Dartmouth-Columbia tri-meet  in the legendary Coxe Cage (New Haven, Conn.).  Last year, Dartmouth swept the meet, with the Big Green (62) edging out Columbia (60) in the men’s competition.  For anyone that is planning to attend this meet with a […]


Welcoming Party

Welcoming Party

  There are two new people to the conference this year that we should introduce to HepsNation: Elizabeth Phillips and J.J. Riese. Phillips is a volunteer assistant coach for the Penn Quakers as she is currently enrolled in the doctorate program for Penn’s School of Medicine.  She will be focusing on the distance crews.  On Sunday […]

Brown University is now looking to fill three positions of their coaching staff while Harvard University has filled in two.


And We’ll Drink to That…

And We'll Drink to That...

Back in 2011, Hepstrack shared a video of Brown’s javelin thrower Craig Kinsley making his Heps Smoothie.  We assume that Kinsley has developed a strong stomach to go with his strong arm as a result of drinking that smoothie. Lucky for us, there is a more appetizing drink option now that we can enjoy in […]


USTFCCCA All-Academics

USTFCCCA All-Academics

Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino can add another title to her name as she has been selected by the U.S. Track  and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) as the Outdoor Track Female Scholar Athlete of the Year.  When she was not on the track, D’Agostino finished the year with a 3.65 cumulative GPA while studying […]

Olympics 2012: T-6...

Our London Eight are slowly making their way to London and if you look in the right places, you can see some cool behind-the-scenes stuff. For example, Brown’s Craig Kinsley has been training at the Team USA camp in Birmingham and has had the oppportunity to demonstrate the javelin to some local youths.  We found […]

Olympics 2012: T-10...

Only 10 days left until the start of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.  Time is slowly passing our London Eight by as they get their final meets done before they need to report to London. The Diamond League matchup at London’s Crystal Palace last weekend was the highlight for many athletes who are […]


Blogging is All the Rage

Blogging is All the Rage

Is it possible that Hepstrack has made blogging a popular thing to do for Ivy athletes?  Maybe, but we won’t take full credit for it. Two days ago, we reported that Harvard’s Samyr Laine and Chris Lambert are sharing their Olympic journeys and stories through Caribbean Journal and South London Press, respectively. Now, we find out […]


Travelling to Europe

Travelling to Europe

There are only three and half weeks left until the beginning of the track and field – or as they say across the pond, Athletics – portion of the Olympic program on August 3rd.  The opening ceremonies are only two weeks away.  Until then, the majority of our focus will be on the European continent […]


International Olympic Trials

International Olympic Trials

Even though the USA Olympic Trials were our focus for the last 10 days, other national championships were taking place in the Western Hemisphere and a number of Heps Nation athletes competed at them. Some of these meets were open meets, allowing athletes from other countries to compete; however, these athletes were not included in […]

Punching Tickets to Spain

Punching Tickets to Spain

Stephen Mozia (Cornell) may have just earned his first Heps title in early May, but he can now add a national title to his resume.  This past Saturday, Mozia won the National Junior Championships in the shot put, heaving the ball 66-3.25.  The national title earned him a ticket to the World Junior Championships, to […]


Aiming for Junior Titles

Aiming for Junior Titles

Three of the top four shot putters in the Ivy League right now are freshmen: Cornell’s Stephen Mozia (Outdoor Heps champion, second Indoors), Harvard’s Ben Glauser (Indoor Heps champion, second Outdoors) and Harvard’s Igor Liokumovich (fourth Outdoors, fifth Indoors). These throwing three will have one more chance to battle head-to-head in the shot put as freshmen this weekend, […]


Going the New England Distance

Going the New England Distance

With the collegiate season now complete, we now direct much of our focus on the alumni who continue to harbor gold medal dreams. If you follow national track & field news, there has been vigorous debate on economics of professionalism in the sport. While a few land those major shoe sponsorships, the majority of the professionals competing at international meets […]

The last few weeks, HepsTrack has been focused on the undergraduate competitions that many of the alumni have tried to sneak in a quick performance or two under our noses.


ECAC/IC4A Double Win

ECAC/IC4A Double Win

Cornell won both the Division 1 ECAC and IC4A Indoor Track and Field championships this weekend.  The Big Red men previously won the 2007 IC4A Championships while this was the first ECAC championship title for not only the Big Red women but also for any Ivy League women’s team.

Columbia’s Kyle Merber ran the second sub-4 mile of his career last night in winning the mile at the Last Chance Challenge in NYC.  Princeton’s Joe Stilin (above) also ran sub-4, finishing fourth in 3:59.98 to Merber’s 3:59.44.  Stilin is the second Tiger this year and third Tiger in Indoor Heps history to finish the […]
